1968 Camaro Rally Sport Convertible
……. mild Resto-Mod
THE BEST ORIGINAL BODY I have ever seen on a 1st gen Camaro. Even the floors and trunk pan are original and outstanding.
This 1968 Camaro has been garaged its entire life with 100% original 50-year-old interior to testify to this fact. Owned by preservation minded owners since new. The last owner had it 15 years and decided to update and upgrade it for better drivability and performance. With the overdrive transmission the car now has “lower revs” at highway speeds and with the performance upgrades it pulls stronger than it did when new. Fly in and DRIVE it home with confidence.

LESS than 5,000 miles on Drivetrain
In addition to the preceding list of upgrades, the entire “drivetrain” on this 1968 RS Camaro has been gone through. Everything from the Carburetor to the rear Differential is new, or rebuilt with less than 5,000 miles since install. The motor itself is a period correct 327 with modern Vortec heads and updated internals. Not over built … it starts immediately, idles beautifully runs strong and does NOT overheat.

Paint & Body
The body on this 1968 RS Camaro appears to be 100% original and in my opinion would be in the TOP 1% in terms of original body integrity on a 1st gen Camaro – a true freak among 50-year-old Camaros, especially convertibles.
The car has had one repaint in its original factory color of Matador Red; it is a very nice driver/show paint job with a slick high gloss finish. The door jams (and under the deck lid) still have the original factory paint red paint and original weather-strip.
All chrome and stainless is in excellent condition including the optional upper body Stainless TRIM.
TOP & boot
The top is “power top” which works fine. It is in good condition although a little dingy in the “folds” from having been down more than up. The rear plastic has good visibility. The red convertible “boot” is the original boot that came with the car new and needs to be replaced as it has shrunk and degraded over the last 50 years.
Tires & Wheels
NOTE: This car comes the “Cragar” wheels and tires you see in the photos. It does NOT come with the Rally wheels you see. The Rally Wheels are off of another car of mine and are only shown in photos to demonstrate how the car would look in its STOCK original configuration. The Cragar wheels rear wheels are 15 inch in the back 14 inch in the front giving the car a more aggressive rake. If you prefer a different set of tires and wheels we can probably work something out.
